Ocean Beach People's Organic Food Market is a member-owned vegetarian consumer co-op that has been serving the community since 1972. Originally a worker's collective, the cooperative has grown to include 6,000 feet of retail space and more than 13,500 member/owners. The Co-op offers an extensive selection of organic produce, grocery, dairy, and bulk foods and herbs, as well as vitamins and homeopathics, cruelty-free bodycare, and aromatherapy products. Enjoy a full service sit-down deli featuring a delicious selection of home-style vegetarian and vegan entrees, salads, sandwiches, freshly prepared baked goods, desserts, and more!
